1 OK, I got the VirtualBox software going, but I really wanted to get
2 OS/2 going. When I launched the VM, I got the warning...

9 I ignored it and went into the OS/2 install. You will be glad to know
10 that Reiserfs managed to recover nicely, without any data loss, after I
11 totally locked up my machine <G>. When I say totally locked up, not
12 even the Magic SysReq Key got any response.
14 There doesn't seem to be anything in my Dell's BIOS setup about VT-x.
15 Is there any software that can probe the BIOS and enable VT-x, assuming
16 it exists? If not, I'm out of luck for OS/2 on this machine.
